I took a much welcome break in my work this weekend and played with Simplicity 4022.
I only need to prepare and set in the sleeves and hem the top… But it turns out I’m undecided about the sleeves. When I tried the blouse for a last fitting before setting in the sleeves, Seb said it was cute as a sleeveless blouse.
The advantage to the sleeveless version is that I can wear the top in the summer, and layer it in colder weather, like here:
(I think I like it better layered over a top!)
Of course, I could (and would definitely) layer the top even if it had sleeves. But the sleeveless top might be more versatile.
Personally, I love the bell sleeves and am still thinking adding them might be the best option. I’m thinking the top would be classier and more distinctive with the sleeves. But Seb’s remark made me waver, so I would be interested in your opinion.
PS: I took these pictures with my self-timer, and used a tripod for the first time. My tripod is my new best friend!
